Zen Monday: #62


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo's about. I look for something provocative or, failing that, at least something odd.

As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I'll add a label to last week's to identify it if necessary (if I know what it is).

You don't wanna go into the back country.

Religion is the smile of a dog.

Or...

All dogs are optimists.

"Ehi Guy, go away, you have in the the house, that's all MY toilet!"

Boz: "Why is it she can only keep up when I have her on the leash?"

marley said...

Come on Mum, keep up!

Katie said...

It's ok, just follow me and it'll be alright.

Boz: "Petrea what the heck's happened ? And where's my favorite...eh,um...you know, bush?"

Keith said...

Why mom? Why?

altadenahiker said...

Boz wanted to be a hot shot, but his mom wouldn't let him.

Trish said...

"I left this in your care and what the woof happened?!?!"


wv: phant...what one does while hiking in the smoke and pheeling the ephects of the heat and smoke!

"This isn't good, ma."

Boz and I took a peek past the sign at the entrance to the Angeles National Forest where it said "CLOSED." We didn't go in because the fine is as much as $1,000 and the jail term could be 6 months. I just don't have the time or the cash (and Boz's savings account is about six cents, he's not a good saver, squanders his allowance). It was very tempting, though.

There's an eerie beauty to the burned hillside. It will replenish, in its way, but the rain might flood it, the soil could tumble down and cover the path. The earth doesn't mind, it's the people who mind. And the dogs, I suppose. Maybe not. Dogs like mud.

"Why is it she can only keep up when I have her on the leash?"
Ha! Good one.

And Boz would make a very good hot shot, once he's got some water in him.

Thanks for stopping by today, everyone. Please come tomorrow, I had a lot of fun writing it and I'm hoping for group participation.

I hope you can come back to this very same spot in the spring, or even the winter, to show us what the land can do.

Kate G said...

Boz: "Come on! Let's keep going! I don't have time for you to stop and take a picture!"

Petrea said...

Good idea, Elaine. I'll try to remember.

Kate, you got it on the nose. Boz is not into waiting.

oh, you're so right.. the earth doesnt mind.. it doesnt mind much of anything, maybe even its own destruction. But people mind; taggers mind clean rocks, clean people mind graffitied rocks.. oh what is a human to do.. become the earth i suppose..
